ENS Receives BinanceX Grant to Add Multi-Coin Support; D’Cent Wallet to Pilot
“We are pleased to announce the (ENS) has received a BinanceX grant to add multi-coin address support.
This means you will soon be able to use one ENS name to receive any arbitrary cryptocurrency — such as bitcoin, litecoin, and zcash — rather than only ether and Ethereum-based tokens.
This will work not only with ENS-native .ETH names, but with all DNS domains that are integrated into ENS. Right now, that’s .LUXE, and a few other closed TLDs. But later this year we plan on rolling this out for most TLDs, including all widely used ones like .COM, .ORG, .IO, and +1200 others.

Note that while ENS itself supports all cryptocurrencies in its records on mainnet right now, this first version of multi-coin support in our Manager UI currently only supports addresses for ETH, BTC, LTC, and ETC (and not all encodings yet, so use it with caution). But we’ll be expanding the capability of our UI over the next few weeks, so check back soon.
